1.6% of the North American population say they are proudly sceptical of everything - except the faith system they hold as true. These people hold to their world-view with religious fervour and blind faith. No matter how much evidence is put before them showing that atheism is absurd, illogical and incoherent they refuse to question their beliefs.
“One who claims to be a sceptic of one set of beliefs is actually a true believer in another set of beliefs.”
These people have to maintain this implausible position or their belief system will collapse.
This is what they’re like. This is how they think.
